Re: Geordan retires (from international rugby)

I'm sure I read he'd retired from international rugby when he returned from the World Cup

Re: Deano!!

London Welsh have officially declared intelligible for promotion, but have pledged to appeal, so looks like you'll get your wish. Whern the time comes that Tigers need a new DOR how many would welcome Dean Richards back? In football they say "never go back" is this the same in Rugby?

Re: England vs Wales: 6 Nations

England just didn't seem to have the bench today, as soon as the replacements came on in the key positions we lost some thing, Youngs passes for example didn't seem to have the same zip on them ass Dickson's

Re: England vs Wales: 6 Nations

No player has it all Jimmy. Wilko never developed a top class attacking game, and once his kicking went off kilt he became a liablity. Look at some of our players. Toby's kicking is flaky, Manu's defence is still a long way from top class, Dan Cole needs to develop his work around the pitch, Ben ca...

Re: England vs Wales: 6 Nations

I have no issue with Fazhead the kicker - he is excellent at both place and strategic kicking. However he has no attacking game and even Saffas fans admit, no pace whatsoever. That is what concerns me. If England play a defensive attritional game, fine, but against the Welsh I don't think they have...

Re: This coming weekends game v Exeter at Sandy Park

We're going down and staying with friends from Exeter - I expect we will be with Chiefs supporters! On present form I don't think Allen should be in the 23 - he has been consistently average since his return from D.I.Y leave and I believe the best midfield available is Flood , 12trees and Manu . Co...

Re: England Team for Scotland

on the Scotland disallowed try, how come their Fly-half was allowed to climb all over the back of Ben Youngs? I would of thought that would constitute some sort of offence

Re: Tigers Falcons today

the BBC's report on ceefax for this (I looked at HT in the Scotland-England game for my mothers partner) consisted of saying Toby Flood might be fit for England next week after playing today and mentioned the score but that's it no real review of the game itself

Re: Sale target George Ford

how long does Toby Flood have left on his current deal? that could also play a part in whether the young lad is willing to stay or not

Re: This is not Soccer

As someone who gives roughly equal thought to both sports, each has its pros and cons. But a huge HUGE pro-rugby factor is the respectful treatment of the refs and their command over the game. Also, players who take the refs decisions on the chin, even if they disagree, appear more "manly" than foo...

Re: Clermont V Tigers - all threads merged here.

You're ridiculus, comparing with football only show you're discussion low level. Unless Chuter actually had or has a bite-mark on his arm, then there is absolutly no evidence. Granted, we have occasionally seen players suspended on no more evidence than the say-so of the 'victim', but these are ver...

Re: Clermont V Tigers - all threads merged here.

not at all, I'm mainly a football fan and believe they are honest BUT in order to prevent any type of conspiracy accusation refs from England wouldn't ref the England team or club sides in European competitions, I don't think Howard Webb for example would be given a Rangers/Celtic game either. As I ...

Re: Clermont V Tigers - all threads merged here.

considering Alain Rolland is half French, how come he's allowed to ref a game involving a French team playing in Europe, the Football authorities don't get much right but they wouldn't allow this situation.

I'm casting no aspersions on the man in question but it just seems odd to me
